Former podcast guest Christian Beach to appear on tonight

Singer-songwriter Christian Beach, who was a guest of the Technology and the Arts podcast back in March 2007, will be appearing just after 6 p.m. ET tonight (10/21) on’s weekend-long “Banding Together” benefit webathon to raise awareness and funds to fight Spondylitis, a chronic inflammatory disease that causes pain in the back, neck and hips.

Plus, anyone who clicks on this link and makes a donation to the Spondylitis Association of America this weekend will receive a compilation CD that includes a lot of the great music played on BlowUpRadio this weekend, including the track “Platte Cove Road” from Christian’s upcoming EP.

So head on over to, listen to some great music from the state of New Jersey and try to make some kind of donation to this worthy cause.

Below, is a video of Christian performing his song “Taking It Real Slow” at Fergie’s Pub in Philadelphia in July 2009. That’s me (Brian) on accordion and the drummer is Michael Scotto of the band Agency. Incidentally, a solo set by Scotto can be heard during Banding Together at around 7:15 p.m. ET tonight.
